Mineral Rights Value in North Dakota

If you want to find out more about mineral rights value in North Dakota this article will point you in the right direction.   As a mineral owner, figuring out the value is the most challenging part of selling mineral rights.  At US Mineral Exchange our goal is to help make the process simple.  We want to help you better understand mineral rights value in North Dakota.  This will allow you to sell mineral rights in North Dakota for the highest price possible.

Before we get started it’s important to understand the information below is simply an estimate!  There is no way to know the true mineral rights value in North Dakota unless you get competitive bids.  Competitive bids from legitimate buyers are the only way to accurately determine mineral rights value in North Dakota.  Below we will provide you with an approximate idea of the value.

The challenge with estimating mineral rights value in North Dakota is that there are many factors in play.  No two mineral rights properties are ever the same!  The value of mineral rights in North Dakota is highly dependent upon many factors.   There are no “comps” in mineral rights.  You cannot estimate the value of your mineral rights based upon what someone else sold for.   Only true competitive bids in an open market can determine mineral rights value in North Dakota.  If you choose to sell mineral rights at US Mineral Exchange that is exactly what you will get!

Estimate Mineral Rights Value in North Dakota

If you want to estimate mineral rights value in North Dakota you need to first determine the status of your property.  Your mineral rights can be in one of three different phases.  Which phase your mineral rights are in will determine how we estimate mineral rights value in North Dakota.   The mineral rights you own can be in one of three phases:

  • Producing Mineral Rights:  If you get an oil and gas royalty check each month, or every few months, then you have producing mineral rights.  Producing mineral rights are mineral rights that have been drilled on and oil and/or gas are being produced.
  • Leased Mineral Rights:  If you own mineral rights that are not producing oil and gas (you do not get a check) but you have signed a leased agreement, you have leased mineral rights.
  • Non-Producing Mineral Rights:  If you own mineral rights that are not producing royalty income and you do not have an active lease, you have non-producing mineral rights.

Next we will look at how to estimate mineral rights value in North Dakota based upon the phase your mineral rights are in.

Producing Mineral Rights Value in North Dakota

If you get monthly royalty checks estimating mineral rights value in North Dakota is more straight forward.  You can estimate value by looking at your last 3 months of check stubs.  Add up all 3 check stubs and then divide by 3 to find the monthly average check amount.   Then simply plug this number into the calculator below.  You can expect to sell mineral rights in North Dakota for about 4 years to 6 years times the average monthly royalty income.

Note:  This estimate of mineral rights value is based solely on the current cash flow.  If there are more wells to be drilled this estimate will be low.  You might be seeing offers much higher than the calculator indicates.  Prior to accepting an offer, ensure that you have a fair offer to sell mineral rights.

Leased Mineral Rights Value in North Dakota

If you have leased mineral rights, you will need to dig up the lease bonus amount you received when you signed the lease.  The lease bonus is the amount you were paid for the right to drill on your mineral rights.  To estimate mineral rights value in North Dakota you need to multiple your total lease bonus by 2x to 3x.  Generally speaking the mineral rights value in North Dakota for leased mineral rights will be between 2x to 3x the lease bonus.   However, if you got a bad lease, or the market has gone down since you leased, you could see a value outside of that range.   The only way to truly determine the value is to list mineral rights at US Mineral Exchange and see what the market is willing to pay.

Non-Producing Mineral Rights Value in North Dakota

If you have non-producing mineral rights in North Dakota, unfortunately there will be little to no value.  It’s safe to assume that the value of mineral rights in North Dakota for non-producing properties will be lower than $1,000/acre with rare exceptions.   It is also safe to assume that the value will be between $0 and $250/acre in most cases.   Many mineral buyers do not want to buy non-producing mineral rights.  They do not want to purchase your mineral rights an then be stuck holding them for years waiting for something to happen.
